Vancouver Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are costly in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Vancouver Disc Centers sees many Vancouver osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Vancouver chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Vancouver chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should begin in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists a couple amazing facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used calcium and vitamin D and

(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US. (1)

Those are some huge figures! Vancouver Disc Centers surely encourages support of this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Vancouver Disc Centers is quite confident that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and maintaining proper levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this new research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers knows this is important.
